Miley Cyrus may have finally found her match, guys! The twerking pop star has been battling it out on Twitter with ’80s veteran singer Sinead O’Connor. The feud started with Sinead’s open letter addressing Miley’s recent wild behavior, saying that the 21-year-old singer is being “pimped” by the industry with her oversexualized image.

This reaction was prompted by Miley Cyrus’ admission that her “Wrecking Ball” video was inspired by O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” hit video.

Cyrus took offense to Sinead giving unsolicited advice, so she turned to Twitter to retaliate, comparing Sinead to Amanda Bynes, who as we all know is currently undergoing treatment for mental illness. Then, to add further insult, Miley reposted some old tweets of Sinead, seemingly to mock the veteran performer’s troubled past.

This post was captioned with “Before Amanda Bynes… There was…”

The feud started with Sinead's open letter addressing Miley's recent wild behavior, saying that the 21-year-old singer is being "pimped" by the industry with her oversexualized image.

Now, Sinead has written her fourth open letter, demanding a public apology from Cyrus, who is apparently making fun of mental illness and those who suffer from it.

In this Twitter war, we’re totally siding with O’Connor, who was only trying to reach out to a troubled young star, while Miley overstepped the little boundaries she had left with her insensitive comments that could seriously affect people who are silently suffering from mental health issues.

Watch Sinead explain her disgust over Miley and the pop stars of this generation on The Late Late Show:

And although we don’t agree with everything Sinead is claiming, we can’t help but admire her bravery to call out Miley. You’ve got to admit there’s some truth to what she’s trying to point out in her statements. So, are you team Miley or team Sinead?

And, of course, we also can’t help but notice that super cute pink Furla “Candy” bag she brought with her.
